Our Team

Our London-based engineering team, one of several within MVF’s Technology team, builds and supports MVF’s form delivery product. We deliver highly performant forms built in React/Redux to a large number of MVF built, external websites, supporting compliant data gathering and multivariate testing among other features.

We are a team of four engineers with a roughly equal frontend and backend focus, one product manager and one engineering manager. We also closely collaborate with other engineering and business teams on projects we deliver. Due to one internal move, and one move abroad, we are currently hiring for 2 engineer roles within the team.

MVF’s Technology team vision is to create the world's leading digital marketing platform that drives long-term client growth, and as a technology and data driven business we recognise the key role outstanding engineers play in helping us achieve it.

We expect much of MVF’s growth to come from great ideas our team members generate, with our collaborative approach accelerating their delivery. We strongly believe it is our team that can deliver this impact.

The engineering team delivers the unique set of bespoke products which have contributed to MVF being recently recognised as the UK's Fastest Growing Tech Firm.
